well it is done...should have ordered pizza...actually the two racks in the middle came out great...but the ones on the outside apparently cooked A-LOT higher temp than then rest of the grill...
one half rack was past salvageable and the other you had to pick your bite...one positive is that my mother in-law said they are going to get a charcoal grill to keep for me here...NEW WEBER sounds good to me!
The smoke advice was sound! thanks guys...that worked well and I even had a decent smoke ring on the 2 good racks...sorry was too ticked off to grab a camera
Thanks everybody for the help! Can always count on the Brethren
